The Minnesota Vikings traded for Sam Bradford and after about two weeks with the team — I’m guessing he had seven practices at most — they decided to start him against the Green Bay Packers.
And Bradford was outstanding.
LeGarrette Blount: He’s on pace for 408 carries, and while that will regress moving forward, expect another heavy workload in Week 3 with New England set to start either Jacoby Brissett or a hobbled Jimmy Garoppolo. Blount still offers zero as a receiver, but there’s 10-12 touchdown upside as the lead back in this offense, and his ADP didn’t come close to reflecting that.
Phillip Dorsett: If Donte Moncrief were to miss time with his shoulder injury, Dorsett becomes an immediate WR2 for fantasy purposes, especially in Week 3, as the Chargers/Colts over/under is 52 points. Dorsett is owned in just 42% of Yahoo leagues, and he could be a major difference maker should he enter Indy’s starting lineup.
“They shot and killed a man and walked around like it wasn’t a human being,” Kapernick told the San Francisco Chronicle. “People are being killed and not even being treated as human beings. No one went and checked on him, no one tried to resuscitate him. Nothing. They walked around, went about their business and made up lies to cover up the murder they just committed. That’s not right and they should be in prison for that.”
Kaepernick isn’t just kneeling during the anthem, he is speaking out about his cause and also donating to it. He pledged to give $1 million to different organizations, and told reporters on Tuesday he will give $100,000 per month for 10 months and a website will track which organizations his donations go to.
Here are other overreactions following Week 2:
OVERREACTION: The Browns are going 0-16. They couldn’t even win after taking a 20-0 lead at home against Baltimore.
REALISTIC REACTION: This will lead the list until Cleveland wins a game – in 2016 or 2017.
